|Situated in an impressive Edwardian building full of atmosphere, this pub is ideal for meetings (of which I attended one recently). The range of Fullers beers plus a guest is fine on quality. Quantity is another matter however and at around £4 a pint, the glasses ought to be filled up without one having to ask for a top up (this happened twice when I was there). Not everyone who drinks there is as rich as the bankers who "work" in the area. If you want to save money and be sure of a full pint, you might prefer the Crosse Keys round the corner, itself a magnificent Edwardian ex-bank.|

|One of the better examples of a Fullers' Ale and Pie house. Tend to visit on a regular basis and the food is usually excellent - the pies contain good quality ingrediants and the food is well cooked - the beef salad was surpringly good, and reasonavbly priced. The Pride and Chiswick are well kept and whilst I agree that short measures are not unknown, I've experienced worse in most other London pubs......|

|Nice pint of London Pride here yesterday, no problems with short measures. Very busy pub but a very interesting one. Steeped in History and Elegance. Saw they did food but did not sample it as I had planned own eating in Chinatown. Well worth a return visit.|

|Oh dear. |
Once a firm favourite in the heart of the square mile and architecturally a real gem - of the kind Fuller's do exceptionally well (cf The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham, or The Parcel Yard at King's Cross station). But once money starts changing hands, things start appearing considerably lack-lustre.
Over a three hour session yesterday, every single pint I ordered I had to ask to be topped up. The Discovery, usually bright and tasty was dull and insipid. Identical rounds cost a difference price each time. When food was ordered, it wa taken to a table but we weren't notified it was ours. Perhaps the fish pie was once shown a photograph of a fish, but that's where any connection ends. Totally tastless, and almost ingredient free. £10.50 for a sad and chewy prawn plus one a bay leaf in a bowl of mashed potato.
Really not good enough. Needs work.

|Very nice Fullers pub, excellently decorated, plenty of staff (it needs it), and by all accounts the food is pretty good as well. And you really can't beat a pint of London Porter.|
